Yes I was using virt-manager, the gui to libvirt. And when I say 
hardware details tab, I mean go to the tab with the info sign ("i") in 
virt-manager for the VM in question.

Go to the hardware details tab, under boot options you should be able to 
change the boot device order. I haven't had time to try any of this 
since the discussion I referred to from last month, so things might have 
been fixed by now.

If I can find the time I 'll try to play with this tomorrow. In the mean 
time good luck to you.
